Carbon Pricing and Carbon Taxes

Thursday, 14 October, 2021 - 09:30 to 10:30
United Kingdom

Is the Financial Services sector prepared for the new and developing regulations to cope with the reporting and costs associated with carbon pricing?

The signatories of The Paris Agreement are revising their Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.  Governments are setting more ambitious NDCs targets which are increasingly aligned to their longer-term Net-Zero commitments as a lead up to COP26.

Achieving these targets and transitioning to a low carbon economy will require significant changes in data collection, compliance and audit to meet new regulatory requirements for financial services.

It is anticipated all governments in developed economies will introduce ETS, CBAM, carbon taxation or similar measures to reach their carbon reduction targets over the coming years.
